I am so, so excited about today’s post you guys! This is one of those projects I’ve been meaning to share for ages – it’s been stuck in my head for more than a year now and I’m just so excited to finally get it up on the blog for you!
It was a couple of years ago now that I first shared this beautiful knit table runner in our dining area. And each and every time I’ve shared it since, whether here on the blog, or over on Instagram or YouTube, I get asked about where I found it. Y’all fell just as hard for it as I have and it was so disappointing to not have a direct source to share every time I got asked so that you could pick up your own cozy knit table runner too.
I knew it was something I could easily recreate myself to share with y’all. It’s one of those projects I’ve been meaning to tackle for ages and I’m just so thrilled to finally share it today!
I made sure to keep the pattern simple, so even the most novice of knitters can take this on. I swear, you won’t believe how simple this this cozy knit table runner was to whip up.
So grab yourself a pair of knitting needles and a big old ball of chunky yarn, park yourself in a cozy spot on the sofa, find an old favourite on Netflix and give this knit table runner a go my friends!
